This one threw me for a spin the first time I heard it but it's clearly a 6/4 eight note flow cycle groove with the back beat on the beats of 2,4 and 6 of each bar. The hypnotic acoustic bass pattern they use later on the beats of 1 and 2 and the ands of 4 and 5 really ties the rhythmic cycle together. Love that displaced rhythmic break they play too makes me laugh every time I hear it.
